“Rapita da Dio (Poema sinfonico” (2017) [“Kidnapped by God”] is inspired by the life of St. Angela of Foligno (1248–1309) an Italian Franciscan tertiary who became known for her mystical revelations. The seven movements explore musically aspects of Angela’s visions. Angela led a “normal” life until age 40, when a vision of St. Francis inspired her to join the Third Order. After her visions and writings made her famous, she established a community in Fogliano of other women tertiaries who “devoted themselves to common life without, however, binding themselves to enclosure, so that they might devote their lives to works of charity in the world.”

Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) is an Italian composer. Educated at the Conservatory in Milan, she has composed in many genres, developing a personal language that is concerned with the blend of past and present. Her compositions have been performed frequently around the world. Ferrari’s music appears on several CD recordings, including five all-Ferrari organ CDs: three recorded by Carson Cooman (2014/16) and two by Peter Clark (2015/16). She served as chair of music composition at Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang, China and is currently professor of music composition at the European School of Economics in Florence, Italy.
